“As sharp as James Brown’s footwork and as solid as Alcatraz…” – The Independent, UK
With 5 Grammy Awards, 15 Grammy nominations, millions of record sales worldwide and thousands of sold-out performances, blues/soul singer-guitarist Robert Cray is credited with reinventing the blues, recording 16 immensely popular albums and writing or performing with everyone from Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bonnie Raitt and John Lee Hooker. One of the greatest guitarists of his generation, he cites Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Guy, B.B. King and George Harrison as formative influences alongside Albert Collins and Bobby “Blue” Bland. Recently inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame at the age of 57, he is one of the youngest living legends to receive the prestigious honor. The Robert Cray Band recently celebrated 40 years since its founding.
